Fit for Communication: Become an cross-culturally competent personality!

Maybe you have had this experience: after long and careful preparation you have built up a promising contact with an international business partner. At last you meet each other personally. The documents are ready, the figures look good. But for some reason no progress is made, there is a cool climate and the project stagnates. And you are left feeling confused…

Many companies which have already prepared their expansion will make the mistake of not becoming sufficiently informed about the mentality of the foreign culture with whom they are dealing. The paramount importance of human sensitivity and tact is forgotten; these factors often play a bigger role in the business contact than numbers and high-flying promises.

For whoever is professionally involved with people from other cultures, it is essential to know and understand the culture of their proposed partners and their way of communicating in order to avoid the occurence of misunderstandings.

If you understand more about the culture you are dealing with, you will be able to use this cultural diversity to your advantage. If you know how to integrate foreign points of view and habits into your own culture, you will gain from it diverse, intercultural synergies – clearly a competitive advantage!

I suggest you explain the modules of the program.
